This peak is not marked because technically the trail continues on to a lake. So if you’re not careful, you “miss” the peak. However, you won’t miss the stunning view!

We had a beautiful hike. It seemed more than moderate, and given its hard to drive to campground you may need to add 2.5-3 miles on from where you park. We went to sequoia trees by a lake - about 1/2 mile from whisky log camp. River is awesome, the wildflowers took my breath away - highly recommend for spring. Keep an eye out for sign to whisky log camp to the left. Trail fairly unkept from that point. Would do again.

5/23/20. Great trail. Horses at the ponds. Lots of wildflowers still I’m bloom. Both falls had water. Not much shade. Pretty hike overall. Signs were up that the trail was closed. Plenty of people still using the trail and distancing.

This was tough, especially in the fog! Very pretty views

An easy walk but very beautiful!

Jennifer Bacon: I live nearby. Unless it happen in the last day or two, my understanding is the gates (there are two of them) are still locked. Only local (cabin owners, Silver City residences, etc.) and park employees are permitted. Your best bet is after June 1

This trail is not maintained. It is the original road into SNP. I hiked this 3 times in March/April of 2020. Due to poison oak and ticks it is best to do this in colder weather. Do not wear shorts. It is an old road that was built by the Kaweah Colony in the late 1800’s, that was intended to become a rail route: this means the “path” is wide and at a 6% grade at the most. So - a moderate hike. But - 1/3 of this trail is very overgrown making it more difficult. The scenery is not great, but so what. It is a good hike with some history. Very few hikers on this. The road to get here is North Fork Dr and is rugged and one lane in many spots, with steep drop offs. Where the County Maintained road ends at the “y” take the road to the right (east side). If you don’t have a high clearance vehicle, best to park and hike up the dirt/rocky road to the gated entrance. Limited parking at the gate. (There is a spot to turn around down the hill past the gate to the north.)

Love this spot...its a great early spring or winter hike!

Love this trail. Went a few weeks back before it closed. With that said. Has anyone been on this trail within the last few day? Is it open to public again?

Very nice views at the top. Took it slow with kids and felt safe all the way up. This was easy compared to some of the other trials we did in sequoia.. shuttle took us most of the way to the rock and all we had to do was take the steps up up and up.

Update: entrance closed.

Great trail. Great view of waterfall (no water when we went) half the trail is a wide road and the other half is narrow. Bring sunscreen and a hat. This was our longest trail by far. But we enjoyed the challenge.

Beautiful trail and tons of wildlife to check out. The trail on the way back had one very overgrown section where it was hard to find the way but other than that a nice hike. Bring lots of water as there is not a lot of shaded areas.

Has anyone been here recently? I want to hike in and backpack for 1 night. I know we are supposed to shelter in place right now but I was wondering how strict the enforcement is right now in this area...

One of my all time favorites ! If afraid of heights the hump trail is for you, but i always take Watchman! Always practice leave no trace policies !!! pack it in pack it out

hard incline if you start right you may see horses which is really nice, but also a lot of dookies & eventually tire tracks

Great trail. Did it with my kids in March of 2018 and because we had a late winter there was still snow. However, I have done this trail many times.

4/06/2020 CLOSED I’ve been on this trail before, it’s a great hike.

03/24/20 Beautiful loop! Little harder than expected. On that note, I picked up a tick on this hike and didn’t find it until 2 days later and sent it off for testing at TickReport.com . I have a friend suffering from Lyme disease and pray I don’t contract this horrible disease!! Please dress and or keep spray with you.
